Khloe Kardashian Staying At Lamar Odom Hospital As Kardashians Go Home
As Gossip Cop has reported, Khloe was accompanied by Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner on Tuesday when she rushed to Las Vegas hours after Odom was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel. Additional family members, including Kylie Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian, later made the same trip. The clan has spent the past two days keeping vigil at the Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center.
Now, though, everyone except Khloe is heading back to L.A., at least temporarily. Understandably, Khloe does not want to leave her estranged husband’s side. An expectant Kim, however, has a doctor’s appointment on Friday, and the family has other obligations.
The group is planning to return to Las Vegas over the weekend, having already canceled Kim’s planned baby shower. With private jets at their disposable and a relatively short flight (about 30 minutes), the family has the luxury of traveling rather easily during this difficult time. As Gossip Cop noted earlier, Kanye West stayed behind in L.A. to care for daughter North, as well Kourtney’s children, a responsibility that may continue over the weekend.
The family’s decision to leave the hospital could be a sign that doctors don’t believe there will be significant change in Odom’s condition over the next 24 or so hours. As Gossip Cop previously reported, Odom remains unresponsive and on a ventilator, deteriorating as his organs shut down. But the power to remove life support, or make any other medical decision, lies with Khloe, since she is still legally wed to the former NBA star.
